nDash Writer Profile for Kelli Karanovich

Headline

Skilled blogger and content creator with passion for cannabis, health and family.

About Me

I currently write from home northwest of Atlanta, Georgia, USA. I hold a bachelor's degree in magazine journalism from the University of Georgia and a teaching certificate in secondary language arts education. 

After working as a middle school teacher and co-founding a steel percussion musical instrument company with my now ex-husband, I launched the imprint BAMF Books in 2018.

So far, BAMF has released my chapbook, Harvest. My full length poetry collection, SOVEREIGN: Recovery Poems, is forthcoming in 2020. 

On Medium.com, I edit the publications BAMF Mag and Secular & Sensational. On Substack.com, I publish the weekly newsletters The Seed: Cultivating Conscious Cannabis Culture and The Grey Rose Garden: Hope Blooms in the Dark. 

I also maintain a presence on various social networks and freelance for a variety of clients--from news stand glossies, to content mills, to curriculum providers.

Outside the world of writing and publishing, I home school my two neurologically divergent children, serve as a CBD sales affiliate for HempWorx and act as secretary to the board of the non-profit AMP Rome.  

While my legal name is Kelli Lynn Karanovich, most of my writing samples reflect my pen name Kelli Lynn Grey. I'm actively seeking additional clients and look forward to collaborating.
